“The iPhone X is the first iPhone with an OLED display, which happens to be the best smartphone display in the world right now,” Chris Smith reports for BGR. “The screen is manufactured by Samsung Display… Samsung display quality coupled with Apple’s tuning appears to be a match made in heaven.”

“Apple’s version of an OLED screen is manufactured by Samsung, but is not an off-the-shelf Samsung part. It’s a custom-built, diamond-pattern OLED array that was built to Apple specifications and driven by an Apple display driver. This screen is not comparable to screens found in Samsung devices on a variety of levels.” – TechCrunch, October 31, 2017
